My Malibu has a very hard to pull latch also. only way is to crawl under front of car and follow the cable to where it ends and manually push or pull the latch and hood will pop.

Cable broke how to open hood


If the handle broke you can grab the cord with a pair of pliers or vice grips and pull the cord. If it broke under the hood then you will have to see if you can see the latch under the hood then maybe with a screwdriver you might be able to pry the latch to the side and the hood should pop up. Let me know if it was the right information that I have provided.

How do you open the hood on 85 cad Seville cable broke


Sometimes not easy... Is cable broke at inside handle or at latch under hood? If you can get hold of broken cable inside with some pliers, just pull cable. That usually works. But not sure where your break is. Getting to latch to release is what can be difficult. Also having an extra hand (someone out side tapping on hood or pulling up slightly) while tring to pull cable with pliers

Hood latch broke


You might have to take out the grill to get at the latch, or cut back the plastic part of the cable and use a pair of vise grips to pull the wire to open the hood.

Handle inside will not open the hood....


I'm going to tell you how( thinking the handle inside the car broke). This handle is made of plastic(replacement handle is a dealer item, pay to much for it), and the cable behind it usually breaks at the plastic connector. you need a pair of vise grips. attach the vice grips to the cable, and pull. It will release the hood. Now if the cable itself broke going to the hood, you will have to remove the grill( is held in place by screws). Remove the grill, and you will be able to pull the release pin on the hood latch, releasing the hood. hope this helps, and please rate, helpful or not

Hood release broke


you are going to have to either remove the panneling to get at the cable and pull it with vise grip or try to get up inside the hood from the front and release the latch that way . either way is going to be tough to get to.
